Fernando Perales, musician, performer, writer, cinema critic and box trainer, he was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1971. He is one of the most important figures of the experimental music and avant garde scene of Buenos Aires, in Argentina.
During the second half of the nineties, he took part in the argentinian cult band Reynols, with whom he released more than 15 records and made dozens of participations in experimental and noise records labels from USA, Europe and Japan.
Nowadays, he forms part of the band UL, with an ex Reynols member, Alan Courtis, and the guitarrist Charly Zaragoza. UL is a guitar trio, with a non convencional formation, which uses composition and execution techniques, based on improvisation and in the non semantic difference between noise and musical sounds, in a traditional sense, without an armonic and melodic structure, focusing on working over the timbric and material aspect of sound and noise.
Simultaneously, he goes on with his solo Project named Viva La Muerte, with whom he released in April 2009 his first solo album 'Necrofilia y Tradicion' and soon he will release 'Verguenza y Autocritica' through Facon Records Label from Argentina.
Viva La Muerte, is a unipersonal orchestra, componed by guitars, tapes, contact mics, irons, garage tools, metal sheets and industrial matrix fallen into disuse, creating a mix of noise, drone and post industrial minimalism.
